Does the DDK provides support to build IPL capable of handling .boot file
bigger then 640K, just like the HD loader now can (3M max I beleive).

I’m quite interested in building an IPL to handle .boot file > 640k. Can
anyone give me any ideas to start?

You should purchase the BSP for your board/reference board close to it.
Contact your sales rep for more info.
